Imagine you are a great horned owlet and you find yourself stranded on the
ground unable to defend yourself from predators or hunt for your own food.
Pretty Frightening! Now, imagine that you (as a human) come across two such
owlets. What do you do? Well that was the question Cheryl Aguiar had to
answer when she was faced with that exact situation. With the help of her
husband, Cheryl attempted to relocate the owlets and provide the entire family
with a new nest site. Find out how this dangerous experiment turns out!
Cheryl Aguiar documents the fascinating experience she had with a family of great
horned owls. When a pair of owls begin nesting in the woods behind her home, she
patiently awaits the arrival of their chicks. When they hatch, Cheryl becomes
captivated by the two, fluffy owlets. Sadly, misfortune befalls when their nest is
destroyed, and the owlets are hurled from safety. Unable to ignore the plight, Cheryl
and her husband attempt the dangerous task of relocating the owlets and provide the
entire family with a new home in the most ingenious way without removing the
owlets from the care of their parents. These intelligent birds also known as raptors,
with a reputation of being extremely aggressive, show a different side when faced
with sudden adversity and befriend Cheryl in the most astonishing manner.
A heartwarming true story of love, trust, respect and the gift of gratitude.
